to bill clinton, george bush. and that is, obama fatigues. three years from now, people will be writing columns about obama fatigue, just as they did about clinton fatigue and bush fatigue and reagan fatigue. franklin roosevelt only gave 30 fireside chats in 12 years. he understood instinctively the dangers of overexposure. he also controlled the media to an extent that modern presidents could not hope to. host: looking back, fdr broke the unwritten code of serving more than two terms. he was elected to four terms. in today's modern age, could we have more than two terms for any president? guest: great question. >> you worked for ronald reagan. if his health was better, of course, would he have run for a third term? guest: i doubt it. he talked about it after he left office. he was going to campaign for appeal of that amendment. he thought the american people should be able to vote for anyone wanted to vote for. it is very difficult to imagine after eight years of office -- we've used up our presidents. that is why this string of two- term presidents is really so unusual. we have a stri
were here to be marking the closure of guantanamo. four years ago, when president obama came to office, he issued an executive order promising to close, within a year. that was absolutely the right thing to do. since then, the prisoners at guantanamo have been felled by the obama administration, by the ned states congress, by the majority of the mainstream media, and by the mainstream american public. when you look at what that means for the people in guantanamo that these failures have taken place, the most important fact that we need to be aware of on this day is that half of the prisoners, over half of the prisoners, had been cleared for release by a sober and responsible group government officials and lawyers. in their report that was issued three years ago, these were decisions that were made. in some cases almost four years ago, these are not people who are needed to be held because they pose a security risk or because they have ongoing intelligence value to the u.s., and yet they have not been released. the u.s. went from a very high level process -- in about half of these cases
without a big subsidy . you look at obama care. costs has risen dramatically and in the past year it is implemented. >>> and wind power. for example, we got into wind power and it costs more to get energy from wind power than it did and going back to medicare . look at medicare. hold on, biggest government invasion in the health care program that we have had in our lifetime. they lose 60 billion a year on waste and fraud . you call that efficient in --? >> it depends on your philosophy. mark, just answer the question. >> what? >> is $60 billion of loss waste and efficient. >> if your figures are correct, no. >> by the way, the figure comes from hard right conservatives at 60 minutes. that's where it came from. >> look, it depends on your philosophy. no government is not as efficient as the private sector. the private sector is only rations care and only available for people who are insured. there are 40 million americans without insurance. do we want an elite group covered by insurance and they are subsidizing the poor and underinsured or people going without insurance. >> who doe
up the second term, chuck. >> four years ago, enormous expectations for president obama. there were a lot of people, hope and change was big. this time, call it pragmatic hope as far as the public is concerned. as you see here, just less than 30% believe they're going to evaluate president obama with a clean fresh slate. 64% will evaluate him based on past feelings. and here, a continuation of a trend we saw throughout the first term. very similar to what ronald reagan dealt with during his eight years. personally, the public really likes president obama. 74%. but his policies, again, more people disapprove of the policies. 49%, than approve of them there, at 47%. so what about the next four years? sort of a mixed optimism, if you will. i go back to the idea of pragmatic hope. 43% optimistic. 43% pessimistic. 22% kind of mixed. and staying with the theme of word clouds, david, we asked folks to send a message to president obama. what would they like to say for his second term? and as you can see here, look at the most popular phrases. a lot of them have to do with the economy. fix t
into it. isn't that happening? that obama care we saw passed a couple of years ago is the beginning of full-blown government take over. >> it is unlikely that the public option will happen. i will jump on the idea of funky mathematics for a second. this 100 billion plus number that is thrown around is from a cvo report . then in 2010, the number was 68 billion dollars . yeah, two different programs and that is a big issue with the public option. there is so many ifs and whether it would make money or lose money and whether subsidies would be involved. >> mike, when government takes something over, doesn't it get more expensive and burrcratic than it was in the private sector? >> this is what happened with other countries that tried universal health care. canada, you can wait for a year for knee surgery . go to amtrak run by the government they are bankrupt without a big subsidy . you look at obama care. costs has risen dramatically and in the past year it is implemented. >>> and wind power. for example, we got into wind power and it costs more to get energy from wind power than it d
hard times ahead. president obama swept into office, four years ago in the waive of hope, but it it seems to show that things have soured and it seems more like cope rather than hope. what happened? >> this is a different environment than it was four years ago, craig and a couple of points. president bush does come into a success term in the strong political position. his approval readings is 52% and the second-term agenda items like gun control as well as immigration and you mentioned those attitudes about the direction of the country and about the economy and this is an american public right now that lowered its standards and lowered its expectations from four years ago. in some ways that's a good situation from the obama white house and sometimes lower expectations make it easier to get achievements done, but this is a country that is still being hit by the aftereffects of the great recession and also this poll comes after the terrible tragic shooting as well as the showdown in the new year. >> we polled folks when they were already pretty down. >> let me ask you about
on record, 7 degrees. there will be differences between the obama 2009 and 2013. four years ago, the crowd estimate was nearly 2 million people. there is a big parlor game about whether the crowd estimates on the mall are ever accurate. but nearly 2 million. now they are saying between 600- to 800,000. and there are a series of other things. and the money. four years ago, the obama administration, the obama campaign raised $53 million for the inaugural with personal contributions, all capped at $50,000 or less and there was disdain expressed by the administration about taking corporate money, et cetera. all of those conditions have been lifted. they are taking corporate monet and $50,000 cap has been lifted and it's smaller. they don't expect to raise $53 million, making it easier to raise, they are saying between $40 to $50. so there is a smaller nature. that's historically consistent. inaugural speeches tend to be over hyped and anti-climactic, and the second one, even more so. >> thanks. >> a look back at the president's first term and a look ahead, when we come back. >> this is fox new
the fashion statement she made four years ago, alina cho takes a look back. >> first lady michele obama. >> when first lady michele obama walked out on stage in that memorable white gown by jason wu, overnight, the designer became a household name. >> so take me to that moment, where she walked out. >> i was screaming at the top of my lungs. that's me. >> who will be the lucky one four years later? >> it's really brilliant what she's done in keeping a secret i have to say. in the previous administrations while there was always interest in what the first lady wore, there was never this kind of red carpet moment. >> reporter: sources close to the process say what started out as a 20 designer field for the inaugural gown has whittled down to two. two designers who have a shot at worldwide fame. so who are they? likely a new york based designer and quite possibly one who is emerging versus a established. around thanksgiving, designers submit sketches. garments are made. there are fittings and more fittings. the gowns are actually shuttled back and forth between new york and d.c. and because
new orleans. like four years ago, president obama has asked people nationwide to join his family and celebrate by serving. this year the president's request is especially timely. it's just the second time inauguration has coincided with the martin luther king jr. holiday weekend. at the rock creek conservancy, volunteers will be cutting back an invasive vine. from one labor of love to the next. organizers in the convention center are setting the stage for tonight's children concert. >> we'll be putting the touches on the infrastructure for that. >> reporter: after the concert, crews will transform the space, setting the scene for the two official inaugural balls, down from ten in 2009. altogether, a handful of artists will perform throughout the weekend. security will be tight. hundreds of thousands of visitors flock to d.c. to take part in history. president obama will be sworn in a private ceremony tomorrow. then monday thousands of people will be back here at the national mall for the public ceremony and parade to follow. reporting live near capitol hill, i'm danielle lee. >>
year. >>> president obama expects it to be a good year for companies hiring. cheryl casone joins us with more. >> some of the viewers are getting jobs through you. congrats to you and to them. >> i know some of them don't want to be on air or have their names used on air but congratulations for those of you e-mailing me getting jobs. we have more jobs available. if you think 20 percent unemployment is good that's fine. we have this company. you mentioned the president in your introduction. the medical device tags a lot of these companies have been laying off. this is a rare find for us. they do monitoring devices to monitor heart rates things like that. they have sales jobs of any critical care. engineers. 106 jobs. salary range pretty darn nice. 60,000 to 325,000. they have been hiring mostly in california. now they are looking to expand the company, massachusetts and texas. >> up to 325,000. it's called masimo 500. >> these used to be and des. these things are darned popular. they are looking to expand across the country. talking about 3,000 jobs over the next year or so. not righ
, looking ten years from now or even 20 years, are we going to look back at the obama campaign and laugh at how simplistic -- >> guest: yes, i believe that's true. we'll say this was a watershed, but compare today what's going on now we say in 2020 that was baby steps. the kinds of things that people will be able to do with our data we can't imagine right now, or we can, but it will seem silly. and the real interesting question is if it's political, can they do stuff that even the government will say is not acceptable for regular marketers? in other words, political speech. does data marketing for politics, is that considered political speech and so is off limits to any kind of regulation? that's a question we haven't resolved yet. >> host: so what are the privacy implications of the -- >> guest: we've just been talking about it. it just depends what you mean by privacy. the interesting question is americans have a hard time grappling with the notion of privacy because it's very tough to understand what's happening. if you go to a site and it says you can disable the cookies but if you d
of have to do a mindset check. it is very confusing. >> last year, the obama administration had a package of recommendations that appeared to be dead on arrival. why? >> examples-simpson? >> i am assuming. -- is that the bulls-simpson? -- simpson-bowles? >> i am assuming. >> i think there was pushed back in the right way. the commission was focused on cuts and not investments. the great deficit in this country is the investment deficit, the investment in people and infrastructure. there were attempts to revive it. it was a super committee proposal. i think it is a good thing the super committee failed to reach an agreement. we will see where that goes. it was not a fair deal. there was so little revenue and so much padding. -- so much cutting. someone was writing the other day that the anti-tax mania is at an all-time low. reagan was willing to raise taxes. it shows how extreme. someone said the of the grover norquist may be the most powerful person in america. the new pledge he has held canada is to. he has held candidates -- the new pledge he has held the new candidates to is keeping mi

making less than $400,000 a year. these democrat critics fear that obama's second term instead of being quote, unquote bold will be quote, unquote cautious as his first term. and on the right, republicans moan and grown and say that -- groan and say that obama is demeaning in the way he deals with house speaker john boehner. hold on, says columnist rockman. we expect too much of obama he says because in the united states, we subscribe to the quote, unquote myth of the imperial presidency. other transformational democratic presidents such as fdr and lbj, rockman says, have substantial democratic majorities in both the senate and in the house to enact their landmark legislation. obama in contrast has had to work with a narrow democratic majority in the senate and with an opposition party, the republicans in control of the house for the two years since january 2011. well, what about ronald reagan? president of the united states two successful four-year terms. on the domestic front, he enacted a major economic recovery package followed by an overhaul of social security. and in his second te

organizer. you know, for years obama said i'm still a community organizer, just at the national level. well, this was the one qualification that i think obama brought to the administration if you can even call it , liquification. he was a community organizer. he was a darn good one. absolutely. he was known by his fellow community organizers as the masters of agitation. this is important because this is the essence of how he views the world. obama bucha into a community, and he would identify an enemy for that group, for that community and she would stoke their animosity, fuel let and really generate this thanks to come anger and even hatred to get and while everybody is all riled up hating some organization or person or whatever he focuses their attention on, she ran through his agenda. no discussion, no need for any debate or discourse, that was all based on distract everybody, get them focused on some entity and then ran through whenever he wanted. that is exactly what he has done at the national level. for the past four years, they're has been no philosophical back-and-forth. no dynamic
districts across the country. the coalition that elected president obama this year more than ever this democratic coalition is bunched into the metropolitan areas. the statistics that jumps out at me is this. in 1988 when michael dukakis got flattened in the presidential race he won over 800 counties nationally. this year getting re-elected by 5 million votes, barack obama won only 690 counties. the democrat vote is so tightly bunched into these areas, you have these wide swaths of district after district after district that do not look like the rest of america, that are not evolving like the rest of america but they're electing conservative republicans whose only fear is not being conservative enough in a primary in a district like that. >> ari, to nia-malika's point earlier, frank luntz talks about presentation and language, but it's about policy, isn't it? if you have got a presidential candidate who recommends self-deportation, if your favored television network insults asians, african-americans routinely, what do you expect immigrants to think of your party? >> i think that's
over the years that led to his hideout and to president obama, who gave the order to go in. one year later, it is appropriate to assess where we stand in this fight. we said that it would not mark the end of al qaeda nor our resolve to destroy it. along with allies and partners, we have been unrelenting. when we assess that al qaeda of 2012, it is fair to say the united states is more secure and the american people are safer. here is why. in pakistan, al qaeda's leadership ranks of continue to suffer heavy losses. this includes one of at al qaeda's top operational planners killed one month after osama bin laden. it includes the man who was killed after succeeding al qaeda's debbie lee leader. and the man who planned attacks against the united states until his capture by pakistan's forces. with its commanders the loss of quickly, al qaeda has had trouble replacing them. this one of the making closing is we have been able to draw from documents seized at osama bin laden's compound. some of them will be published on line for the first time this week. for example, a some of the law and w
